Delicate, quaint, and dreamy – this watercolor wedding at the Century Inn may just leave you speechless. Dusty blues, soft purples, and sage greens were at play for Emily and Mike’s intimate celebration at the historic venue. The dainty hues came alive through the details including Emily’s lush bouquet, her maid of honor’s flowy gown, and an absolutely striking wedding cake by Tasty Bakery that featured hand-painted watercolor inspired florals! And while the characteristics made the day physically beautiful, it’s the moments that will without a doubt tug at your heartstrings. From the vows and the duo’s sweet son smiling throughout the celebration to the surprise drive-by parade with members of the community giving their well-wishes, there surely was an abundance of love shared. It’s not hard to see that this wedding is just so darn pretty, but these photos by Anne Troxel Photography surely show it off in the best of ways!
About the Couple
Our grandfathers had done business together and our fathers continued that relationship and became good friends. Both fathers wanted so badly for us to get together. We grew up close but never really considered each other as a life partners until one evening at a Friday afternoon happy hour. It just clicked!
We were engaged within the first four months of dating because we knew we had found our person. Mike proposed on my family’s farm at the place on a hill where we dream of building a home one day. It was a rainy night, which made Mike’s proposal all the more romantic.
About the Wedding
The spring wedding was very classic with lots of soft ivories, dreamy purples, dusty blues, and sage greens! Farm House Floral made the perfect bouquets and boutonnières to emphasize all of the Century Inn’s natural beauty. Though the guest list had to be reduced to just the couple’s immediate family due to the pandemic, it was evident that every guest was there to give all of their love and support to us. Our son’s happy belly laughs could be heard around as we exchanged their vows with happy tears.
One of the most ethereal things about the celebration was the garden ceremony space. A cobblestone path led to a semi-private, vine-covered arbor where the couple exchanged vows blanketed by a gorgeous golden sunset. It truly felt like they had stepped into another world.
Tasty Bakery set the bar high for ALL future wedding cakes with a hand-painted watercolor painting on the cake! It was truly edible art!
Mike and his best man both wore custom-made David Alan suits, complete with their names embroidered on the interior pocket for good luck.
Apart from saying “I do”, our favorite moment of the day was when we got to take a step back from our reception and enjoy watching our family dance the night away. In the middle of what seemed like complete chaos due to the pandemic, we felt this immense wave of peace wash over us in that moment. After months of not knowing what the next step was going to be and multiple changes, we finally did it. We were finally married. It’s still such a dream-like feeling. We had the most perfect day and we wouldn’t change a single detail.
